Motivated by the Great Recession, this panel will focus on understanding how economic conditions and labor market opportunities affect the well being of children and young adults. Most studies of the impacts of business cycles focus on adult labor market outcomes such as employment and wages. This panel stands out for its focus on youth, and its focus on less traditional measures of well being, particularly measures related to health.
